Every single year that I think of retiring this gag for good, I end up doing another.

SO while we’re here, I have a super important issue I want to bring up. If you’ve been following me since I’ve started this comic, you’ll know I tend to participate in protest concerning internet freedom. You’ve probably glimpsed from my comic that I can be a political person, and I’m probably obnoxious about it sometimes. But of all the issues I care about, there is only one that I would reach out to those who lend me their ears on my website. And it is protecting a free and open internet!

There is a lot going down right now with the FCC and it DOES EFFECT YOUR LIFE. The watchdog group I follow, Fight For The Future, has already summarized this issue, so read about it here if you want to help:

On July 12, 2017, websites, Internet users, and online communities will come together to sound the alarm about the FCC’s attack on net neutrality. Learn how you can join the protest and spread the word at https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/.

Right now, new FCC Chairman and former Verizon lawyer Ajit Pai has a plan to destroy net neutrality and give big cable companies immense control over what we see and do online. If they get their way, the FCC will give companies like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T control over what we can see and do on the Internet, with the power to slow down or block websites and charge apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience.

If we lose net neutrality, we could soon face an Internet where some of your favorite websites are forced into a slow lane online, while deep-pocketed companies who can afford expensive new “prioritization” fees have special fast lane access to Internet users – tilting the playing field in their favor.

But on July 12th, the Internet will come together to stop them. Websites, Internet users, and online communities will stand tall, and sound the alarm about the FCC’s attack on net neutrality.

The Battle for the Net campaign will provide tools for everyone to make it super easy for your friends, family, followers to take action. From the SOPA blackout to the Internet Slowdown, we’ve shown time and time again that when the Internet comes together, we can stop censorship and corruption. Now, we have to do it again!

Additionally, here are two videos that will explain what exactly is happening:

They’re both really funny so there’s no excuse for getting bored while learning up about the issue!

So if you think there’s nothing you can do, you’re wrong. Any participating will help. I work in the web development industry. I like making my web comic. I enjoy online activities with friends around the world. So I have professional, creative and social reasons for caring about this issue. And if you’d join me and sign up for this fight, I’ll be in debt to you. Just sign up with FFTF and they’ll give you every instruction you need to help.

I like making my comic and I want for the internet to remain open and free so that I can continue doing what I do without ever potentially facing up a corporate machine that expects me to pay them to exist online.

But regardless of my own comics, there’s so many ways your rights are being violated here. And its as sketchy as it can get. Please help however you can!
